Naomi Campbell Assault Trial Adjourned

Supermodel Naomi Campbell appeared in a New York court today to answer charges she assaulted a former assistant with a mobile phone.

Campbell, 36, pleaded not guilty at Manhattan Criminal Court and her case has been adjourned until Sept. 27. She did not speak at the hearing.

It is alleged Campbell hit Ana Scolavino with her phone in March, after accusing her of stealing a pair of jeans, leaving the maid requiring stitches to the head.

British Campbell says Scolavino made up the assault story after she was fired.

Prosecutors believe a possible plea deal could be reached in the case.

Six years ago, the model pleaded guilty to hitting former assistant Georgina Galanis with a telephone and was ordered to take anger management classes.
